Bears make it official with Garrett Wolfe, place him on IR

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears made it official and have placed running back Garrett Wolfe on season-ending injured reserve.

Wolfe suffered a lacerated kidney Nov. 8 vs. Arizona. Wolfe is expected to make a full recovery and he is signed through 2010.

Because of rules involving the practice squad, the Bears may be forced to add a player to the 53-man roster in order to avoid having to reduce their eight-man developmental squad. One natural move would be for running back Kahlil Bell to be signed from the practice squad following practice, which just started at Halas Hall. Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa has been out for the season for five weeks but remains on the 53-man roster.

Stay tuned.

This team is clueless.......It's KARMA, man, KARMA!!!

so technology didn't do squat for lacerated kidneys since Jimmy Mac did it....and whoever tried to scorn me here for wondering how Garrett could be back in 2-4 weeks....Raw Sewage thru a straw...and Go!

Bell would be an intriguing story...from SoCal...named Bell....hand him the ball

Here's a novel idea. How about signing someone that can block or someone that can tackle?

Actually Hitman you said McMahon missed over 6 months, he missed six weeks and the playoffs. You claimed Wolfe may not come back for a year. McMahon actually returned the following season which is pretty well known as the 85 season. And yes medical research has advanced. Nobody argued he wouldn't miss the rest of the seaon, just not an entire year.

Are you actually arguing that medical reseasrch has not advanced?
